Maybe you didn’t notice it at first. Or maybe you didn’t think it was anything serious. A small, unidentified black speck here. A tiny sound of scratching there.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that you have something living in your house with you. If rodents got into your Scottsdale home this winter, it’s time to call Schendel.
Why Rodent Infestations are Most Common in Winter
Rodents enjoy the outdoors when the weather is nice and food supplies are plentiful. That’s why you don’t often hear about a rodent infestation in the middle of summer. Rodents are content to stay outside when all of their needs are provided for.
However, when winter arrives, rodents usually find themselves a bit hungry and cold. Their ample food sources have dried up, and temperatures are not as warm as they were a few months before. That’s when they start looking for an indoor area in which to live and eat. Since your home offers both heat and steady food supply, if rodents were able to find a way inside, they happily did so, and are now comfortable residents of your Scottsdale home.
Why DIY Rodent Control Doesn’t Work
If you have rodents in your house, it’s tempting to try to get rid of them on your own. Unfortunately, many DIY attempts either fail or are only partially successful.
Mouse traps rarely catch every mouse that has made its way into your home, and poison can be dangerous for your family and pets. When rodents get into your house, they usually hide deep within its walls, crawl spaces, or in the attic where it can be nearly impossible to reach them.
